Tomoka Inshore Fishing Report by Capt. Nick

  With the offshore season slowly winding down it’s time to gear up and hit the flats and inshore waters with a fly rod. Inshore fishing is challenging enough add the element of casting a fly makes the hook up that much more rewarding. Target species are red fish, tarpon, snook and bone fish.   Capt.

Offshore Ponce Inlet Fishing Report

Bottom fishing is still steady offshore between 80 and 130 feet of water. Red eye snapper are biting on cut bait and squid. Red snapper are usually around so have to get past them on the way down to get the red eyes to bite. King fish are not as thick as they have been but you can still pick up one here and there trolling back closer to shore.   Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report

Ponce Inlet offshore water temps have been sitting in the low 80’s which means hungry fish. King mackerel are still loving the planer and spoon combo. We’ve had great luck with bigger fish using chin weighted ballyhoo and larger bonita strips with white and pink sea witch. The only downside is when kings are plenty so are the barracudas. Reel fast….   Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 16th – 18th

Offshore fishing report July 16th: Trolling bite was a little slow but we can always rely on the barracudas for a fun fight. These guys come 5 feet out of the water trying to throw the hook. Very acrobatic and they like to fight all the way to the boat.   Offshore fishing report July 18th: The King and Spanish Mackerel’s are back. Trolling over structure and ledges will get them fired up with live bait or bright colored spoons. Using wire to the spoon will prevent break offs from their razor sharp teeth. Not much beats a bowl of

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 9th – 11th

Offshore fishing report July 9th: Tons of weeds moved closer to shore which brought the pelagic bite into the 80 to 150 foot of water. Although it’s a chore to clear all the baits as you troll through the miles and miles of sargassum it usually yields good results. Naked ballyhoo got the most bites.   Offshore fishing report July11th: We ran a little different trip this time. Stayed close to shore and fished for bonita on light spinning rods. Using vertical speed jigs we cast into the school of bonita and it didn’t take long to get a bite.

Lower Keys Offshore Fishing Report: June 16th-24th

Fishing in the Key’s never disappoints especially offshore. With barely a south wind the seas were less than a foot all week. Fishing around weed patches brings all the schoolies to the party. Throw out a handful of cut bait and watch them come running. Using light tackle spinning rods the Mahi will keep everyone on the boat occupied for hours. Legal limit is 20′ to the fork 10 per person.

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report: June 16th-24th

It’s prime time fishing offshore out of Ponce Inlet. The bottom fishing has been busy, Amber Jacks are finally showing up regularly. Most fun way to catch them is with a speed jig on a spinning reel. Inshore you’ll find a healthy population of mutton and red eye snapper with the occasional trigger fish mixed in. If you like fishing live bait the grouper bite has been strong once you get away from all those pesky snapper. Capt. Nick
